Hello Pebbles Fans!
Terhi Koskinen here back with you and I’m very happy to share this layout just now in the end of May. Everything outside is green, at least here in Finland and I can also bath in the beauty of flowers and blooms! Even on my way to work I can smell how the apple trees are blooming. Spring is my favourite, absolute favourite!
To bring the lovely spring vibe on to the scrapbook layout can be a bit tricky, but don’t worry at all as I have couple of tricks to help you out. And also a step-by-step process video in the end of this post to show you exactly how to create a layout like mine!
First, make sure your photos are presenting the kind of spring you wish to spread out through the layout. For example, it will be hard (if not possible) to make bring spring vibes to a layout if the photo on the layout shows the face of Santa Claus.
Instead, take your photos from outside and make sure there is something green showing. Or even better, take some photos of your favourite blooms and go with that!
Second trick for a spring layout is to fussy cut blooms and flowers as much as possible. I mixed couple of the latest Pebbles collections to make sure I have lots and lots of different shaped blooms. The ephemera pieces, patterned papers and the biggest fussy cut blooms are from Chasing Adventures, all other flowers from Loves Me. I like to avoid too busy layouts, but a good mix of different shaped, sized and coloured blooms are definitely very important key to bring the spring vibes onto your page.
Third and last trick to spring layout is green. Like I said in the first paragraph, the world here looks like it’s all green. If you looks closely, you can see there are hundreds of different shades and tones of greens outside. It’s important to bring the same idea to your page.
Pick different greens to your layout: to the background, to the ephemera pieces and to the fussy cut leaves. Also, the photo(s) will bring you another tone of green.
As said earlier, I’ve got a video tutorial for you. Enjoy watching!
